Hope 10th grade goes well :). I need one of those shirts. I had no idea they existed, and now I want one. Oh, and good luck to Athena, as well. I have horrible memories of 9th grade, but 10th was fun….. Good luck to her! (Is that a Hetalia shirt she is wearing? My daughter, who starts 11th grade in a few weeks is a fan) It is indeed Hetalia. I can’t see the last word on the shirt–is it “war”? 3 more years until you are an empty nester. That can mean a couple of things. FREEDOM. You already have plans to turn her bedroom into a hobby/gaming lounge. You and your wife are already shopping for new furniture or… midlife crisis time of ‘oh christ I’m old enough to have a kid in college’. Then you go out and get a sports car to try to make yourself feel young. Best wishes for an awesome year. Has school in the U.S. always started before the Labor Day weekend? Just a slightly confused Canadian here. Guess: We have an entire basement for a hobby/gaming lounge if I want it. And I already have the Mini. I think I’ll weather this upcoming change just fine. Still amazed at those transformations from girl to young woman. Was talking to friends who have a daughter in the same grade, it was nice to hear mom and daughter read the same stuff, too. @aj sheperd: school is managed locally. Different locations start at different time. Northeast generally starts early september (right after labor day). midwest starts earlier. More in line with college start times. I yesterday viewed old pictures of Athena when I looked up the Schadenfreude-Pie for obvious reasons. She has grown up mightily. *Keanu Reeves* Whoa *Keanu Reeves*. She’ll be 16 this year, won’t she? Nice shirt. Sauce? Ah, Hetalia. Anime at its…something-est. Have a good school year, Athena! In the middle of August? The youth of today should rise up and slay us all for this outrage. Such a strong resemblance to her beautiful mother! :) Make Pasta Not? Is this recovered from the third tablet that Moses dropped? I must stop making pasta. Are potatoes still allowed? ….wut the…. IT’S STILL AUGUST!!!!! >|^( 10th grade :) She’s old enough to drive that Mini, with 6-10 of her closest friends packed in, for late night/early morning/all weekend road trips. Athena is her mother’s daughter, and looks more beautiful every year. Comments are closed.
